Thousands of Venezuelans have registered to receive identification cards for membership in the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela, PSUV, throughout the weekend ahead of the country’s upcoming elections.
PSUV leader Diosdado Cabello declared the registration day as a “success” in all states.
From one registration point in Caracas, Cabello publicly announced his satisfaction with the nationwide process, which he said reaffirmed the people’s loyalty towards Venezuela’s revolutionary process.
“The system is overloaded by the amount of people registering for their ID. We're very happy the PSUV is on the streets,” Cabello said.
He pointed out that the party is undertaking a “great effort” to maintain popular support “so it can be the base political organization for the revolution in Venezuela.”
He added that more than 193,000 militants have attended the party's education center and will later become political educators in diverse states.
Cabello said the PSUV is aiming for “political efficiency and revolutionary quality.”
“Political efficiency will allow us to win the elections and the revolutionary quality of our militants will give us the strength to build our revolution.”
He also invited all people who claim there's a “dictatorship” in Venezuela to visit the country during the identification process so they can see how the poorest people identify with the Bolivarian Revolution.
